One of Indian Orchard’s favorite hangouts is by far Solmar Restaurant and Pub located right on Main St. Why, you ask? Well if it’s not the variety of American dishes, it’s the ...
Are you craving home-style lasagna the way mom makes it? Pasquale’s Restaurant & Tavern in East Longmeadow gives mom a fair run for her money when it comes to preparing delicious pasta dishes! From their chicken francais to the tasty penne a la vodka, each dish is made to order with fresh, never frozen ingredients.
A local favorite, with over 20 years of experience under their belt, this restaurant & tavern know how to provide an enjoyable and intimate evening to everyone who walk through the door. There is plenty of parking in the back of the restaurant and its easy to get to, right off Rt 83, can’t miss it. Pasquale’s appeals to a variety of people; if you are looking to have a nice family dinner or just want to catch the game after work with your friends, Pasquale’s has two separate areas- a sports bar area with several TV’s and booths as well as an intimate, spacious dining area away from the crowd.
After sampling a variety of foods at Pasquale’s, including chicken francais and sea scallops with risotto it was time to try out these martinis that everyone there rave about. It took me no time at all to discover how one could love a pumpkin martini so much. The inside of the glass, lightly drizzled with gooey caramel, the rim coated with cinnamon sugar and the liquore bursting with flavors of vanilla, pumpkin spice and a hint of irish creme summed up the feeling of Autumn in a glass. What made it taste even better ,was the affordability of their martinis. A fun fact about Pasquale’s Tavern: they have gluten-free vodka for all you who suffer from gluten allergies and just really need to kick back and enjoy a drink.
Pasquale’s Restaurant and Tavern in East Longmeadow is a great place to enjoy cozy dining with friends and family or kick it with your co-workers for the big game. It’s all how you make it your own experience there. Half off gift certificates will be available at sweetjack.com starting October 26th at 9 AM sharp.
Squires Bistro & Blue Goose Cupcakery
Ever want to escape for even just a little while? Find tranquility in Squires Bistro & Blue Goose Cupcakery. Located on Main St in Agawam at the brand- spankingly new Cooper’s Commons, this beautifully remastered 18th century building is home to many new shops, making it a one stop destination for dining, shopping and beauty.
Squires Bistro and Blue Goose Cupcakery offer an outdoor seating area enclosing you within a bed of Fall colors. Yellow, orange and maroon mums surround your table as you drink one of their freshly-brewed coffees or sip from a steamy mug of home made soups while leaves fall from the old oak trees on the property around you.
The menu is ever-changing. They offer something different everyday. You will always find some sort of sandwich, wrap, panini or quiche at Squires. Make it your own by adding whole ground mustard, custom-made aioli sauce or their signature kickin’ bayou sauce. I really enjoyed their quiche; the most popular ones there are the ham and cheddar, and spinach and mushroom. Soup is always available as well as a variety of hot entrees to warm you up from the crisp air. Finish off your meal with a slice of homemade apple pie or an order of mini gourmet cupcakes made by Blue Goose Cupcakery.
The cupcakes are a perfect little size that come in a variety of flavors, something for the peanut butter lover as well as those who love coconut, mint and chocolate. Take a box to go to share with your office or family.
Squires Bistro and Blue Goose Cupcakery will be the deal of the week on Sweetjack.com starting October 19th at 9 AM! Get them while they last!
There’s nothing like that nostalgic feeling of a good ole’ fashioned diner. Rt. 9 Diner in Hadley is one of the coolest joints around. Owners Chris and Archie have made sure that your experience there will be one you will rave about to everyone you know. They’ve had this place running for the last 9 years, 24 hours a day!!! That’s right kiddos, your about-to-be favorite diner will serve you up a milkshake at 3 in the morning if that’s what your taste buds crave!
If it’s breakfast you seek, don’t feel limited by breakfast hours, they serve it around the clock! Eggs benedict, french toast, waffles, challah bread, sausage and bacon- if you can dream it, they have it. With an extensive menu ranging from breakfast, to lunch and dinner specials; burgers to specialty pastas and seafood, the whole family will be satisfied with Rt. 9’s selections. Picky kids can order off the kids menu, and they even eat free on Tuesday nights!* There is a healthy options menu as well as Greek Specialties. Did you think you could find all this at a diner?!
Everything I tried was flavorful and cooked just right, their homemade sauces added just the right touch to make their dish go above and beyond the traditional standards. They have such an extensive menu I could go back repeatedly and never order the same thing. You can do the same with a half-off gift certificate from http://www.sweetjack.com/, pay only $10 and get $20 to spend at Rt. 9 Diner.

Have you ever wanted to transform yourself back to 18th Century Bavarian Germany? You can do exactly this with modern-day wait staff and delicious German drafts at the Munich Haus in Chicopee! With a variety of great dishes for you to try, and several platters if you can’t make up your mind, this is by far a fun and cultural experience for the family. From Pfälzer Roastbratwurst to German Knockwurst- the list of in-house made sausages could go on and on!
Munich Haus has parking on the street and a little lot right next to the restaurant. They offer lunch and dinner specials as well as take out. But its worth making the trip to eat there because your take-out food doesn’t come with an authentically German-dressed waitress.
They are not your run-of-the-mill dining experience. Everyday provides something unique; Thursday’s are All-You-Can-Eat Sausage night and Friday’s are for you to enjoy live accordion playing. Munich Haus is also gearing up for their annual Oktoberfest celebration. For one low price you can enjoy local raised oven roasted pig, Oktoberfest Style Chicken, Roast Pork and have Sauerbraten. Meatballs, Sausages and more. There will be Spätzle, Sauerkraut, Red Cabbage. Bratwurst, Knockwurst, and Schnitzels. Cucumber, Rettich Salad, and Obatzter are just the beginning! A special Vienna Style Dessert Station with homemade specialties will finish the event. YUM! And most importantly, what is Oktoberfest without a stein full of beer!?!

My dining experience there was super fun and I hope you have a nice time there too!
Central Rock Climbing Gym was unlike any place I have ever been.As it’s located in a college town, the vibe was already very eclectic and friendly from the moment we arrived. My experience could not have been more fun, I had no idea what I was doing, but who cares! I came to climb some rocks with the finish line in my mind and the strength in my heart!
Right off Rt. 9 in Hadley this spacious facility was loaded with over 200 top rope climbs and over 80 bouldering climbs. From a beginner rock climber to an expert level, there was a course for everyone. You could climb pumpkin shaped rocks or hang upside down from the ceiling. Or if you just felt like going for a run, well hop on a treadmill and work out your energy that way too.
They offer more specials than I can count on one hand: high school discounts, college discounts, even senior citizen and family discounts. I’d imagine, if there is any other kind of discount, you can probably get it from Central Rock. They have kid-friendly areas, and spots just for birthday parties (hey parents! they even lock your kids up for the night if you want!!) What’s cooler than a sleep over at a jungle gym?! It doesn’t matter how old you are to enjoy that one!
They teach belaying classes so you can come in and climb with your friends without having a staff member present- or if you don’t want your 7 year old belaying you down, come on a Saturday for open rock-climbing, where there will be an instructor to help you out!!
Take advantage of the discount passes on sweetjack.com, get em while they last! If this place doesn’t tickle your fancy, I don’t know what will!!
Thanks for the awesome time Central Rock! I will be seeing you soon!
